Conclusion: 2/5
The original title for this film is The Education of Fredrick Fitzell. I thought this was a strange little film. It was almost as though it was trying to be too clever. It doesn’t completely work. I thought that Dylan O’Brien was very good in this. He doesn’t have an easy role but does it well. The only comparison I can give is that it is very similar to the film Donnie Darko (2001).
